Matthew Prior (Мэтью Прайор)


Bibo and Charon


When Bibo thought fit from the world to retreat,
As full of Champagne as an egg's full of meat,
He waked in the boat, and to Charon he said,
He would be row'd back, for he was not yet dead.
Trim the boat and sit quiet, stern Charon replied,
You may have forgot - you were drunk when you died.

  2. Love Disarmed
  3. To the Lady Dursley
  4. Chaste Florimel
  5. An Ode to Mr. Howard
